Breakthrough Ministry Grants are intended to be seed money to fuel the movement of the Spirit in the hearts of Dakotas United Methodists. These grant funds are provided through the generosity of United Methodist Churches across the Dakotas who faithfully give through their apportionments, Foundation funds, endowments and Annual Conference Miracle Offerings. Projects supported through Breakthrough Ministry grants include new ministries and expansion of existing ministries to reach new people, ministries that create church-school partnerships or relationships with college students or other young adults, and technology that will enhance mission and ministry impact.
